Well, I have completed my first project in my new craft room. I was invited to a baby shower on the weekend and I've been trawling the internet for ideas for nappy cakes. I was going to make a motorbike (they are sooo cute!), but as both the mother and father-to-be are in the Navy I thought I'd give a ship a go.
I used 5mm presentation board to make the ship and covered it in pink wrapping paper. Filled it with nappies, muslin wraps, bibs, spoons, and baby socks. The "flight deck" was made from a wet wipes box covered in pink wrapping paper. Anchor was cut out on my cricut from the Going Places cartridge. The base was also 5mm presentation board and I covered it in material from my stash - looking for that ocean waves look!
|Warship with a pink twist!|
|Prop looks a bit odd, spoons a bit too bendy.|
|Both parents-to-be have served on ANZAC ships so I tried to|
copy the ship's design (as much as you can with nappies!)
|Paper and ribbon from the stash|
|Cot cut on the cricut from the Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge|
|You cannot see it clearly but I used the patterned paper|
to make a pillow and quilt for the cot.
|Butterflies from the stash. One is stuck to the cot and the |
other two are on long pieces of acetate to make
them look like they are hanging in the air.
I hope all is well with everyone,
